For our wedding, we decided to have food that suits all needs and tastes. We have quite a few vegetarians and flexitarians among us and our wedding location provided many veggie dishes to satisfy our needs. We had vegan coconut soup (similar to the Thai Tom Kha Gai) and loads of food from the barbecue.
As midnight snack, I wished for something special so one of my friends and I made Oreo Popsicles. You should do this with at least one other person, this increases the fun and reduces the preparation time! This is our how-to:
- Oreo cookies (200 pieces)
- White chocolate (mine was vegan), ~2kg
- Sugar sprinkles, ~1.2kg
- Several flat plates
- Big plates
- Popsicle sticks
- Small pot
- Small melting pot
- Baking sheets
Time: plan half a day for 200 popsicles
Misc: plastic bags (cellophane) and colorful ribbons
Prepare a small pot filled with water (2/3), place melting pot in it, bring to heat and melt white chocolate under constant stirring. Don’t overheat the chocolate as it will crystallize the sugar and not taste well anymore.
Place as many Oreos on a plate as fit in one layer. Microwave for 10 seconds on 750W. Twist the cookies open. Press a popsicle stick in the middle of the filling, add some chocolate as glue, put the cookie back together and place on a plate covered with baking sheets to avoid sticking which fits in your fridge. Each batch should be in the fridge for at least 10-15 minutes in order to let the chocolate become solid again.
After the cooling, cover the popsicles with chocolate and sugar sprinkles (that you placed on a very flat plate covered with baking sheets before). Let cool in the fridge again for at least 15 minutes.
Wrap in cellophane bags which you tie nicely with your colorful ribbons. I wrapped up 2 popsicles in each bag.
These sweet treats were given to our guests as a replacement for a wedding cake – I’m not a big fan of those cakes. For me, they look pretty but in most cases they are way too expensive and don’t taste well, at least for me.
Enjoy your Oreo popsicles! They could be a funthing to do with kids, too!
